With 25 points and 12 rebounds, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist joins LeBron James as the only two players in NBA history post those numbers twice before their 20th birthday. MKG also had a 25-point, 12-rebound performance on November 10 in a 101-97 win over Dallas. Kidd-Gilchrist is the only rookie to reach this plateau twice in his first year.

I remember the Lakers were trying to trade Pau to Minnesota, Derrick Williams, a future 1st rd pick and filler to the Bobcats in a deal to get MKG on draft night. And MJ turned it down.

No he won't.

He'll be a fantastic, high level role player ala Deng/Iggy though.

Brian Scalabrine is the first ever NBA player to record a 2pt, 4 rebound, 5 assist, 1 steal stat line in a 3rd quarter of a game on a cold July night on a leap year in the history of the nba.

Goran Dragic is the first Slovenian PG to score 30+ points in a game for the Phoenix Suns.

^^^ horrible comparison.

mkg is a special player because he gets it done despite his shooting limitations. he reminds me of kenneth faried because you don't have to run plays for him, he will get his shots in the flow of the offense because he hussles like crazy. now he doesn't have Lebrons size, but if he can fix the hitch in his shot and develop a jumper he will be an allstar. i think his offensive limitations are like a danny granger rudy gay but defensively he has a chance to be elite. great pickup for the bobcats, jordan has drafted better lately, if biyombo works out he will look very smart. i think if they can snag one of Len, Muhammed Noel or Zeller for next year they will become a playoff team by 2014.

MKG only rookie to do it twice? Wilt averaged 37 points per game as a rookie and 27 rebounds per game. I'm pretty sure he got 25+ and 12+ more than twice that season. Perhaps 72 times (since that's how many games he played). Baylor average just about 25 and 15 a game, so I'm sure he got it a few times in his first season as well (though neither were as young as MKG, but the NBA wouldn't let you in the league back then until your class had graduated).

Though, it is impressive. He seems to have a good all around game.

The stat is for a rookie under 20. Wilt was 23 as a rookie, Baylor was 24.

With MJ's track record as an owner I would do pretty much the opposite of what he does. Jury is still out on MKG

He did specify that he was one of only two players to do it before the age of 20, but in this sentence makes no mention of specific age of the rookie season, merely stats that MKG is the only rookie to do it, not the only rookie under 20. That is not correct, and that is what I was speaking to.

That's because the thought was all inclusive.

it was retaliation to a stupid comment of mkg > kobe. he posted that merely because the previously mentioned post was from a dirk fan. noone is turning this into a kobe argument. keep your head out of your....hands.

The article directly states that MKG is the only player to go for 25 and 12 in the same season under the age of 20. Lebron did it twice, but in two separate seasons.

But MKG>Kobe is obviously false. The next statement about kobe>Dirk (which is true of course) was defensive. Not only defensive but so brutally obviously true and all because he couldn't take a joke.

Nice, but I will agree there are far too many "records" out there like this one. I always hate hearing on the broadcast when someone (okay Lebron) gets or averages lets say 27 7 and 7 and they say he is only the second player to average at least 27 points 7 rebounds and 7 assists when there very well are others who may have had a more impressive combination with say 28 points 10 rebounds but "only" 6 assists.

It is simply some arbitrary numbers at that.
